Biography

Formed in 1989 from the ashes of The Untouchables, this London three piece sought a return to the powerful guitar based rock'n'roll that inspired them to first pick up their instruments in the late seventies. Influenced by The Jam, The Ruts, Ramones and of course the Pistols the Guitar Gangsters produced a debut album of melodic power punk gems that made "Prohibition" a sort after release. This, together with tracks on Link Records' "Underground Rockers" compilation album (Manic Street Preachers, Senseless Things and Mega City Four were also featured) brought the band to the attention of Stiff Little Fingers who invited the Gangsters as guests on the Fingers' comeback UK tour.
